an antique weapon across the border. this is a weapon he declared. >> former u.s. ambassador is outraged mexico is playing politics with this. >> it has to do with the mexican government plaming the united states for part of the drug cartel problem. their view is it's all of these american firearms flooding mexico illegally. i swear they have been sympathetic to that charge through the years. that is one of the motives of the fast and furious operations. the only conclusion i think you can draw is if the mexican government is using this particular case to make a larger point. that is when you have to apply political pressure much higher levels. mexico can do a lot of things easy. it is christmas, generosity. they can say it's a farewell president to hillary clinton. they can say whatever they want. the important thing is to get it out and later to deal with the mexican government and make it absolutely clear this conduct by them is unacceptable to americans. >> meanwhile lawmakers are calling for a national travel boycott to mexico until hammar is home. >>> the time 18 after the hour. co
